disagree with me, today's jobs report offered talking points to both. we heard mitt romney say and we heard it earlier, that the fact that it inched up to 7.9%, even though there were 171,000 net new jobs, that permits mitt romney to say there are more people, higher rate of unemployment than when barack obama took office. so, the president can say we've got another month of new hiring and net pluses, so it becomes a wash. anybody disagree with that? >> no. i think that's right. i would say look, the best -- we've known for months i think that the best case political scenario for barack obama when it comes to the economy is sort of a muddle. that the way he loses is if the unemployment rate remains high, jobs -- the jobs are not -- are 75,000, 80,000 jobs created no talking point where he can say it's not where we want it to be but i think it's getting better, so i think a muddle -- it's sort of the tie goes to the incumbent. in baseball, be it's muddled enough it winds up not helping mitt romney which means it helps barack obama a little bit. >> let me ask you, charlie, just switching gear

the president said. as we begin to see both candidates, we'll hear from governor romney in a little bit, what they're calling their closing arguments in the last few days of the campaign. >> reporter: that's right, and president obama is making his closing argument wrapping it around the recovery efforts for sandy, the bipartisan cooperation that he demonstrated with chris christie, trying to make the point that this is when america is at its best. now he's got a better than expected jobs report and he can say america's coming back, home values are rising. we had the most private sector hiring in eight months. all those are elements of the president's argument. of course, mitt romney's argument is going to be is this the best we can do? we can do better. he has already been saying that earlier today, saying the president says this is the best it can be. i say it can't stay this way. there you have the two arguments framed as we go to a final weekend with the polls nationally showing a dead heat and in the swing states a slide advantage for president obama. >> obviously it's all happening, the
, but this is a classic swing state and we have a dead heat. the president's getting the democrats. governor romney's getting the republicans so you want to look at the middle. 48% for governor romney. 46% for the president so a dead heat. both candidates are in the state today and will be back to make their case. because of ohio's diversity, what's the demographic composition. among nonwhite voters, he's getting 70% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in sena cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting
offered in the wake of hurricane sandy is now both a memory as the candidates refocus on campaigning. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. >> wisconsin was one considered a lock for obama but the president's appearance in green bay is telling just how close this election could be. >> i'm really moved by your welcome. >> mitt romney appeared in another key battleground state addressing a crowd of window manufacturers in virginia. >> he's been out talking about how he's going to save big bird and then playing silly word games with my last name and then -- or first and then attacking me day in and day out, attacking me doesn't make an agenda, doesn't get people back to work. >> in a last minute scramble to move undecided voters in swing states several fanned out across places like iowa, colorado and ohio. ohio continues to be ground zero for political rachers a neck and neck there could be the deciding factor. in washington, fox news. >>> all right. we still have plenty ahead, your weather,

is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho

an impact on both president obama and mitt romney's campaigns. i want to welcome ken rogoff to our panel, harvard university professor of economics and public policy. we'll begin, sir, though, with christine romans. let's talk about how they crunch these numbers. >> the jobs report is actually two sprit surveys, unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households. the job creation number comes from a survey of 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate, 200 census workers interview 60,000 households in person and over the phone. everyone over the age of 16 is classified as employed, unemp y unemployed or not in the labor force. from that then the government extrapolates the unemployment rate. job creation number comes from another sample, sample of 141,000 businesses. they tell the government how many workers they have on their payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to include the whole u.s., including offices, stores. both surveys look the a particular week or pay period usually around the 12th day of the month. this month it was the week of october 7th to
. whatever the numbers show it will serve more as ammunition for both president obama and mitt romney in their final push before tuesday's big election. political experts say at this point, it's unlikely these numbers will sway voters. today's report will be from october. economists predict a slight gain in jobs from last month. the september report shows unemployment dropped to 7.8%. that was the first dip below 8 since the president took office. today both candidates are plunging into rapid campaign pace. president obama has three events in the battleground state of ohio, mitt romney has two. a lot of analysts say the buckeye state could be the deciding state in the electoral vote. >> today, because of the resilience of the american people, our businesses have created over 5 million new jobs.
